Here is a word about Shimoda directly from their web site.

Breakthrough Photography Filters "World's sharpest and most color neutral ND filter"

  • - Logo-breakthrough-San Francisco- Black Text-EXPANDED

Free shipping within Canada (any filter)  

A new up and coming filter company (started in 2015) called Breakthrough Photography has been highly rated in the photography industry lately.  I personally know of a few photographers that use the brand with success.

As of June 5, 2019 I have done significant testing on the X4 line including the CPL, 10 stop and 6 stop NDs.  If you are a Nikon user and have adopted the new Z line and use a 14-30mm f/4, there is no vignetting at 14mm when using a single X4 CPL or X4 ND.  The CPL and ND can be stacked at around 16-17mm.  In the near future, I will be testing their X4 15 stop stacked with the X4 CPL on both the 14-30 and 24-70 f/4.

Ordering Information

Option 1:

I offer a 5% discount when you order through my Square online email invoice system (I have to email you an invoice online).  You can also get the filters quickly as most are stocked in the Victoria area.  If you are in a rush, please email me first to check stock levels.  I am currently ordering 1-2 times per month from Breakthrough and orders take around 3-5 days to receive.  You are welcome to pickup during regular business hours too. 

Also, 1-2 days per week I do pre paid deliveries in the Victoria area free of charge. 

All orders placed regardless if placed directly with myself or through Breakthrough include free shipping to Canada and a 300 day return / exchange offer.

Option 2:

You are welcome to order directly from Breakthrough Photography Filters if I am unable to meet your needs.  Please use the following unique link which enables Breakthrough to see what I have referred back to them

Sometimes, I am away photographing and not able to place orders quickly or I may not have stock for 1-2 weeks which means you could order direct.  To find out if I am away, please email and a responder is always sent if I am off internet and cellular and unable to process your order.

Also, you will receive free shipping to Canada on Breakthrough Photography filters (brokerage and taxes not included).  Note, Breakthrough Photography itself does not offer a discount at checkout so you will have to pay the full price up front.  I will reimburse 5% for your US$ checkout subtotal 15-30 days after ordering via PayPal (this discount comes directly from myself not Breakthrough).

Any questions about ordering, please email myself directly.

Singh-Ray Filters

My favourite polarizing filter over the last 10 years has been the Singh Ray LB Color Combo.  I use it in 90% of my landscape image making.  It is wonderful for reflection control (wet leaves, wet trees, wet rocks, wet windows, etc.) and increased saturation (especially with greens).

I have also received a Singh Ray 10 stop mor slo neutral density filter to compare against other brands I have used in the past (as of May 24, 2019).

To receive a 10% discount on your next Singh Ray Filters order, please use the discount code dhi10 at checkout.
